Art; a fun, creative and often sticky way to spend your time. Art is one of Lakers most popular classes with five classes scheduled every week! Christine helps our members bring out their creative sides, express themselves trough their work and showcases the beautiful art for us all to see and admire. Art can be a great benefit for our members with special needs:
- It can help build and enhance a members problem solving and fine motor skills
- It can help encourage communication and expression through the work they create
- It can help promote self-esteem and motivation to succeed in each artist
Art itself can be a way for people to communicate, those who find it hard to express their thoughts and feelings verbally have the chance to communicate through their art instead. Art is therapeutic and offers a creative and fun way to for people to express themselves without any restrictions or without worries of being judged. There is no such thing as right or wrong when you create art!
Our members build the confidence and skills to express themselves through learning to use various art media including drawing, painting, printing, collage and mixed media in their class with Chistine.
Lakers also offers different forms of Artistic expression, such as:
All of these are forms or the arts, allow our members to bring out their creative side, and convey their feelings and ideas to us.
Some of our members even work in Lakers with Christine creating beautiful handmade cards that we sell in our reception area and on our Lakers shop on our website!
